Why Universities Should Consider LEXI Automatic Captioning Over Traditional Human Captions for a Future-Ready Accessibility Revolution
21st March 2024

In the ever-evolving landscape of education, accessibility is a key priority for universities worldwide. As institutions strive to create inclusive learning environments, the demand for economical, high-quality captioning services has grown significantly. AI-Media’s LEXI automatic captioning is emerging as a game-changer, offering a host of benefits that outshine traditional human captioning methods. In this article, we’ll explore how LEXI is transforming the captioning landscape and why universities are turning to this innovative solution. 


Accuracy and Consistency 

One of the primary advantages of LEXI automatic captioning is its unparalleled accuracy. Powered by advanced artificial intelligence algorithms, LEXI consistently delivers captions with an accuracy level over 98.5% and on par with the accuracy provided by traditional human captioning. This accuracy can be further enhanced through the creation of topic models or custom dictionaries which expand the vocabulary to include technical terms and jargon specific to the academic field in question. This ensures that students receive reliable and uniform content, enhancing the overall learning experience. 


Real-Time Captioning 

In a fast-paced academic setting, the ability to provide real-time captions is crucial. LEXI excels in this aspect, offering almost instantaneous captioning for live lectures, discussions, and events. Traditional human captioning may struggle to keep up with the pace of spoken content, leading to delays and potential information gaps. LEXI’s real-time capabilities empower universities to deliver inclusive education without compromising on timeliness. 


Multilingual Capabilities 

As universities attract a diverse student body from around the globe, the need for multilingual support in captioning becomes imperative. LEXI’s AI-driven platform excels in supporting multiple languages; breaking down language barriers and ensuring that all students, regardless of their native language, can access educational content seamlessly. This flexibility is a significant advantage over human captioning, which may be limited by language proficiency and availability. 


Customization and Integration 

LEXI goes beyond standard captioning services by offering customization options tailored to the specific needs of each university. Institutions can integrate LEXI seamlessly into their existing platforms, Learning Management Systems (LMS), or video conferencing tools. This level of integration enhances the overall user experience, making it easier for both educators and students to incorporate accessible content into their daily routines. 


Cost-Effectiveness and Scalability 

In an era where universities are constantly seeking cost-effective solutions without compromising quality, the financial aspect is a crucial consideration. Traditional human captioning services often come with a hefty price tag due to the manual labour involved in transcribing content. LEXI, on the other hand, presents a cost-effective alternative that doesn’t compromise on quality. By leveraging artificial intelligence and automation, LEXI significantly reduces the labour costs associated with captioning, making it an attractive option for universities looking to maximize their budget while maintaining a commitment to accessibility.  


The scalability of LEXI further contributes to its cost-effectiveness. As universities expand their online course offerings or host large-scale events, the ability of LEXI to process content at scale ensures that the institution can meet the growing demand for captioning without incurring proportionate increases in expenses or the potential shortage of scare human captioning resources. This scalability feature allows universities to adapt to changing requirements efficiently, ensuring a sustainable and cost-conscious approach to accessibility.
